Nan Rich supporters howl at Rendell’s ‘Charlie Scott’ slip

by George Bennett | September 29th, 2013

For some supporters of Nan Rich‘s gubernatorial bid, the highlight of Saturday night’s Palm Beach County Democratic Party dinner was a slip of the tongue by keynoter Ed Rendell, who referred to Republican Gov. Rick Scott as “Charlie Scott” at one point before quickly correcting himself.

Rich fans took it as reminder that Charlie Crist, the Democratic frontrunner if/when he launches a 2014 campaign, is a former Republican who was elected governor as the GOP nominee in 2006.

“Great speech, but best two words? ‘Charlie Scott.’ Freudian slip?” said Rich supporter Hillary Keyes on Twitter.

Rendell’s flub came while he was calling on Republicans to support more government spending, or “investment.”

Said Rendell: “There’s no investment going on. What’s the last time Charlie Scott – I mean Rick Scott; Charlie Scott, Charlie Scott was a basketball player from North Carolina….When’s the last time Rick Scott invested a dime in anything?”

Charlie Scott was a basketball star at the University of North Carolina who went on to distinguished pro career with the Virginia Squires from the old ABA and the Suns, Celtics, Lakers and Nuggets in the NBA.
